Black Forest Roll
Earlier today Sonia came up to me and called me by my name.. "Rimaaaa".. i went quiet.. 5 minutes later she calls me again by my name "Rimaaaaaa".. 20 mins went by and the next thing i heard.. "Mamaaaaa" .. I went up to her room and asked her "Uhmmm why did u call me Rima and not mama??" and Sonia's answer..
"I dont know".. grrrrrrrrrr
So there u go.. shes almost 3yrs old.. talks like there is no tomorrow.. recognise her alphabets well and can spell out her name when u write down all the letters on a piece of paper without any probs.. she recognised shapes very well and shes in love with all kinda puzzle.. (seriously.. she can really sit still and do her puzzle till everything is done - good cos during that time her mama can do stuff in the kitchen)
If ur wondering where she gets the idea of calling me by my name... beats me.. i think she must hv been hearing ppl calling me Rima and thinks its ok to call me by my name.. eeekkk so not cool my dear.. u will... and forever will.. be calling ur mother.. Mama!
Anyway as always whenever hb is not in town, both Sonia and I will hv a girls day out.. we went to the florist.. also went to Beatty school to visit the teachers there and of cos to see mom at canteen..( oh how i missed being the 'chef' to mom in that school canteen!) did our groceries and went straight home after that since i hv tonnes of stuff to do.. i also managed to bake this swiss roll which i had wanted to bake since mid last year... wonder whats taking me so long to gv this wonderful recipe a try.. I will definately be baking this again soon!
